Career 
Information

Education Needed

Most school social workers across the state possess a Master's of Social Work degree. Positions requiring a LCSW are becoming increasingly more prevalent. A few districts and agencies who contract to provide school based mental health services do hire bachelors level social workers, but not often. In addition, school districts prefer to see social workers who have school based field education/practicum settings. Here is a list of universities that offer BSW and/or MSW degree programs:


Bachelor of Social Work Program ONLY

  • Williams Woods University
  • Lincoln University
  • Lindenwood University
  • Fontbonne University
  • Southeast Missouri State University
  • Evangel University
  • Southwest Baptist University
  • Avila University
  • University of Central Missouri
  • Missouri Western State University
  • Park University


Master of Social Work Program ONLY

  • University of Missouri - Kansas City


BOTH Bachelor and Master Programs

  • University of Missouri - St. Louis
  • University of Missouri
  • Saint Louis University
  • Missouri State University


BOTH Master and Doctoral Programs

  • Washington University


Applying for Positions

School based positions are in high demand, have a high volume of applicants apply, and positions fill fast. Most districts hire between March-May and again in August.  Agencies with school based positions typically hire in the summer and again in January, due to different fiscal years and grant deadlines. If you are going to graduate soon or already have a social work degree and are looking for job postings, you have come to the right place. While SSWAM does its best post all known open positions across the state, we recommend that you also routinely check individual district HR pages and the following websites for additional opportunities:
